print2mold - injection moulding with 3D printing tools

The fast manufacturing of injection-moulding tools with 3D printed tool allows for a fast and cost-effective production of prototypes and low volume production. This method has not been designed to entirely replace the costly manufacturing method of machined injection-moulded tools - but this more cost-effective with a low batch size, less than 10,000 units. In addition to the cost advantage, injection moulding with a3D printed tools is significantly faster - on average, approx ten working days are enough to finalise tools and parts.

3D-printed injection moulds vs. 3D printing

Our 3D-printed injection moulds are ideal for processing parts with special properties, such as conductivity, underwater use or high temperature resistance. Printed moulds are up to 80% cheaper than steel fabricated moulds, and the 3D printing process is 70% faster than manufacturing using the conventional tooling.

igus® offers an online 3D printing service so you can easily order custom-made parts and receive them quickly. 3D printing your components can sometimes be a better option if you need them delivered quickly. They can usually be despatched within 24 hours or approx three days if they have a complex design.
Our high-performance iglidur® materials are also available as filaments for 3D printing and are well-suited for moving applications due to their high abrasion resistance and excellent coefficients of friction.
